Congregation Netivot Shalom Preschool seeks to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment for each and every child.
We are devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents.
In addition, we seek to ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to her or his Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning.

HaShavuah - Nevonim

HaShavuah

February 27, 2015  8 adar, 5775

Dear Nevonim Parents,

We had a fun and educational week learning about Purim. We made masks using different art media and techniques over several days. We made and played with groggers. We made Purim sock puppets and watched many children driven puppet shows and purimspiels. Using the puppet theater, the children took turns telling the purim story while the other children sat in the audience. We read "a Purim Poem" by Rena Dorph. This book was illustrated by our preschool children who are now in 3rd grade.  In book club, with the older children, we read "Raisel's Riddle" which is a Purim Cinderella story.

We also did Havdallah on Monday.
 
We did dot paintings after reading  "the Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds.
 
We went on a fabulous field trip to hear stories with Nora - then we had a surprise stop at the park which was wonderful. We want to remind parents to sign up for volunteering to come to the park so we can make it a regular Thursday event! The list is on the door for the rest of the year.

Ofra had been eating yellow grapefruit for lunch. She brought 2 to share on Wednesday.
 
We had lots of magnet play, exploring how they attract and repel.
 
We played with stones and wooden blocks in the yard- we made lots of roads!

Next week we look forward to Judy returning, but we are very grateful to Ofra for helping in our kitah, and to Vered and all the Nachshonim children for sharing her with us!

Shabbat Shalom,

Nevonim teachers
Inbal, Ruth, Ofra, Rinat
